An important message regarding the privacy of all Reed students
The HCC staff are governed by federal statutes in healthcare and college health, including HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act of 1996) and FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974). These acts protect the private information of students in college and their health care records. Conversations between the patient and HCC staff are private, unless the patient requests that another individual be included in the release of private information. Whenever possible, this permission must be in writing. Patient visitors and individuals accompanying the patient to the HCC are included in the purview of HIPAA and FERPA. Please keep in mind that HCC staff can neither confirm, nor deny that a student is currently being seen or has been seen at the HCC, unless a signed release of information is in the student's medical record. We ask that the Reed community and parents respect the student's right to privacy.
Come speak to our HCC medical staff about PrEP!
Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis is a pill for those at high risk for HIV. Taken daily, it can block HIV.
PrEP is the daily use of antiretroviral medications in combination with safer sex practices to help reduce the risk of HIV infection in an HIV-negative person.
The HCC medical providers would be happy to meet with you to discuss your individual situation and the options open to you regarding PrEP.
Before PrEP is prescribed, HIV testing and symptom history must exclude an HIV infection. It is to be used along with regular HIV/STI testing, as well as periodic counseling and support around adherence and sexual choices.
PrEP is recommended by the CDC and WHO as part of a comprehensive prevention approach for individuals at substantial risk of HIV infection.
